Nope, I always unassign the dpi button. I don't know when it started. Used to be I would use 1600 for desktop and 400 or 800 for games. Then it became 800 for everything, then I became lazier and that turned into 1600 for everything.

Back in school years, when I had a gaming X7 mouse I tried to get accustomed to using a 'benefit' of having multiple dpi settings. The mouse supported up to 5-6-ish settings, and sometimes I even enforced myself to using them all - 1 for WIndows, 2 for game X, 3 for sniping in game X, etc. Then I got down to 2 settings - slow (400) and fast (1000), as cycling through for the needed setting was tedious. In the end I realized that I perform much better when I have a single stable setting I'm familiar with. That was back when I didn't have a mousepad, thought that lasers are better and much dpi is good.

Lucky todays school kids, they all get 'dem Zowies and Logitechs and are all rich and beautiful.

I have them both remapped to middle click. It's a lot lighter to click and no accidental scrolling

Oh, I'm sorry....Did I somehow offend you with my usage of the DPI buttons on my mouse? Have you personally talked to each and every competitive player, for all games? Didn't think so, stick with facts.... I use the DPI buttons, you don't - get over it. I'm not saying anything bad about your choice of DPI, no need to bash mine. biggrin.gif

Ah yeah, those disgusting casuals, you know, the 99% of gamers that actually pay the bills for the companies that make the hardware and keep technology moving. But do look down on them from your ivory tryhard tower... rolleyes.gifrolleyes.gifrolleyes.gif



..and for the record, to keep it on topic. No, I've never used the dpi button for that purpose.

I have not talked to every player, but players themselves put their settings on their configs, and on their stream description, and on their facebook pages, esea profiles, faceit profiles, if you want a fact let me show you this one: 100% of csgo players that play on major tournaments use something arround 800 or 400, sometimes 1600 or 1800 but thats 1 in 20 players. So there is your fact mate

Hate that button on my MX518/G400. Back when I used them more regularly I would always have this compulsion to make sure I am at 400 (800) CPI and thus cycle through. Those are the moments where you really miss an indicative LED.

Changing cpi/sensitivity midgame is detrimental to muscle memory, if you need to lower sensitivity to hit precise shots you're simply using too high sensitivity.
It's ok to be lazy, just be conscious of it...
Anyway cpi shift can be useful on games with turrets/tanks with slow turning speed or delay between view and cannon.

I used 3 mice with a top mounted profile/CPI button.

I didn't use it on the Kana because of the sensor.

I owned the Avior 7000 and G303 at the same time. I used the button/s on those mice to test different settings. I configured various settings on the Avior via the drivers. For the G303 I just changed the CPI via the mouse. I liked the button design on the G303 as it allowed me to switch CPI easily without changing my grip.

That being said. I did not use the profile/CPI button to assist me in-game. I simply use the in-game settings. If I need to change cursor speed, it would be to lower it for a specific situation, I will not increase it. I think most people that want a top mounted CPI button is to use it to increase cursor speed when the FOV becomes lower. For such scenarios I don't want the same or faster cursor speed as I use during the normal FOV of the game. The only reason I want a top mounted button is to switch between profiles that have different polling rates, LED settings, etc. The only time it's very useful is when switching between a game and the desktop.
